Question about Belkin F1DF102PEA 2-port KVM Switch
I have a similar problem - I have two PCs attached to a Belkin Switch2 USB KVM and neither the mouse or keyboard is recognised at boot up. The work around is to unplug the KVM USB lead from the back of the PC that I want to use and then reconnect it. At this point the PC recognises the switch and the mouse and keyboard start to work. I have installed the latest drivers, installed the Switch2 software from the Belkin web site (which is really just a soft switch), but nothing has changed. To say it is a pile of **** is an understatement. Any help greatfully received.

This is not quite a solution, but a workaround. Take a USB cable extender and intercept the 5V supply wire in it (normally red) with a push to break switch. When you have powered up the PC, push the switch and the KVM will then work (same as your unplugging but much easier to do ). Switch bought on Ebay for 0.99GBP. Belkin tried to insist that I had my laptop plugged in and working if I wanted to use my desktop.
